NOVO-OGAREVO, July 29 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian authorities learnt nothing new from Edward Snowden’s revelations, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin told reporters on Monday.
“Snowden exposed what we knew a long time ago,” Rogozin said, noting that he means the cyber weapons.
The Russian Deputy Prime Minister added that Russia is already taking measures to not to depend from foreign electronic components. “It is extremely important to bear in mind while rearming our enterprises that these machines may be provided with software with some spy devices implanted, and these spy devices can function in some specific way or transmit the information,” he went on to say. “This is a matter of national security, but not cyber security,” Rogozin noted. He recalled that at the previous meeting on the machine tool industry Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev gave an exhaustive instruction to prevent such situation.
Rogozin added that in such sensitive areas as space Russia will rely on its own electronic component base.
